Are you as excited as us since the summers are finally here?  Research shows that kids are stressed during school with their academics, homework, the social scene, and all the other activities that keep them busy. They need time to chill and relax and summer holidays are usually packed with plenty of fun with family and friends and outdoor activities. And, after exciting picnics on beaches and resorts, playing with friends, swimming in the pool, or otherwise playing cricket and getting exercise, most kids get indoors and look forward to relaxing with their favourite TV shows.

It’s latest summer movie festival, ‘Kiddies Express’, takes audiences on a fun-filled ride with entertaining global successes along with a lot of learning.

In the Valley of Peace, Po the Panda, finds himself chosen as the Dragon Warrior despite the fact that he is obese and a complete novice at martial arts. The movie is directed by John Stevenson and Mark Osborne and stars the voices of veteran Hollywood talent like Jack Black, Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, Ian McShane, Seth Rogen, Lucy Liu, David Cross, Randall Duk Kim, James Hong, and Jackie Chan.

 

An excerpt from the film:

 

Po: “Maybe I should just quit and go back to making noodles.”

Oogway: “Quit, don’t quit… Noodles, don’t noodles… You are too concerned about what was and what will be. There is a saying: yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present.”

Madagascar

Slide5

This film showcases the story of four animals who have spent their lives in blissful captivity in Manhattan’s Central Park Zoo. Chris Rock voices Marty, a jaded zebra is ready for a change after ten years of comfortable captivity at the Zoo. He flees for the green fields of Connecticut, prompting a rescue mission by his best friends: the Zoo’s star attraction Alex the lion (Ben Stiller), a bossy hippo named Gloria (Jada Pinkett Smith), and the clumsy, hypochondriac giraffe Melman (David Schwimmer). They are unexpectedly shipped back to Africa and end up getting shipwrecked on the island of Madagascar.

 

The film teaches us to rejoice everything that life throws our way just as like Kurt Vonnegut said, “Enjoy the little things in life cause one day you’ll look back and realize that they were the big things!”

Slide6

Stuart Little 2

 Slide8

With subtle humor, loveable characters, a great script by Bruce Joel Rubin (Academy Award-winner, “Ghost”), Stuart Little 2 is one of the best family films of the summer.

The story begins with Stuart’s brother, George (Jonathan Lipnicki has given his voice) having found a new friend to play with, leaving Stuart (brilliantly voiced by Michael J. Fox) feeling left out. His mother Mrs. Little (Geena Davis’ voice) is overprotective of her minuscule younger son after he narrowly escapes an injury in a soccer game. His father (voice over by Hugh Laurie) sympathizes, but reminds Stuart of an old family adage, “Always look for the silver lining in the cloud.  The silver lining appears when Stuart rescues a homeless bird named Margelo (voiced by Melanie Griffith) from the sinister Falcon. They become friends and all is well until Margelo disappears one night. Stuart is convinced that Falcon is responsible and ventures out with the family cat Snowbell (voiced by Nathan Lane) to rescue her. Stuart Little 2 is a must-watch film for its characters, dialogue, music, and animation and fun moments. Stuart Little is courageous and humble while Snowbell is hilarious.

 

This visually impressive film provides wholesome entertainment for kids with Stuart enlightening us with some serious friendship goals like determination, trust, respect, and acceptance.

Jumanji

 Slide9

Based on a gorgeous picture book story of the same name by Chris Van Allsberg, Jumanji takes us through a beautiful magical adventure and makes it into a thrilling ride that defies everything.  The excellent combination of adventure and comedy are the big attractions. A timeless adventure film, Jumanji is about two kids who play a magical board game. While playing it, they release an adult trapped in the game. They encounter various dangers which will come to an end only when the game is completed. The film was written by Greg Taylor, Jonathan Hensleigh and Jim Strain. It stars Robin Williams, Kirsten Dunst, David Alan Grier, Bonnie Hunt, Jonathan Hyde and Bebe Neuwirth.

 

 

 

Mr. Go

 Slide11

A crisp narrative and some truly amazing technical expertise combine to make Mr Go one of the best family films with big laughs, big emotion and even bigger thrills. Its engaging plot offers a thoroughly enjoyable experience for all ages. It is based on the classic 1980s comic ‘7th Baseball Club’, the titular character refers to a 285 kg circus gorilla who is the first to be recruited by a savvy baseball agent to join the professional

Korean Baseball League.  Setting the stage for the gorilla Ling Ling’s journey to Korea is the Great Sichuan Earthquake in 2008, which causes the death of 15- year old Wei Wei’s (Jiao Xu) grandfather and leaves her in charge of his circus with a huge debt over their heads. As debtors harass her, Wei Wei is left hassled on how to save the circus and the forty other orphans who stay under its roof. And so, when the wily Sung (Korean actor Sung Dong-il) comes in to assist, she readily accepts his offer to transform Ling Ling into a baseball star. Dreaming of success, Weiwei and Ling Ling go to South Korea and Ling Ling quickly becomes a superstar in the baseball league.

What makes it a must-see film is that it makes you smile with its heartwarming, poignant and inspirational story.

IndiBlogger Launches IndiPR.com – A self-learning engine that automatically targets the right publishers

Recently, IndiBlogger underwent major changes as they have finally launched IndiPR. After a successful streak in the world of blogging and having established itself as a major brand to be reckoned with, IndiBlogger decided to venture in the world of content marketing (especially press releases).

With an automated and well-thought platform, IndiBlogger is all set to help bloggers and influencers bridge the gap and each will get what they are looking for.

Thousands of businesses, products and services are launched every day across the world. When these products go live, a Press Release is usually the first order of business. Thanks to Indiblogger, businesses of various sizes, including start-ups, can now have their Press Releases published by relevant influencers in less than 72 hours.

IndiPR.com was built to make it extremely simple for a business to get their Press Releases published by top bloggers. All a business has to do is upload their Press Release and the ‘Automated Influencer Targeting Engine’, or ‘AITE’ for short, proceeds to accept applications and automatically shortlists bloggers based on various factors including internal ratings and rankings. Once shortlisted, the influencers do their research and publish their articles. This helps businesses get the right exposure without the unwanted hassles of hiring the right content experts, looking for back links and more. It is simpler, quicker and much more efficient.

Anoop Johnson, Co-founder & Director of Marketing at IndiBlogger, adds, “With a starting budget of just USD 150, a business of any size will be able to get their press releases published by influential bloggers with a few clicks.”

IndiPR.com assists digital marketers with a variety of tasks including, but not limited to, SEO, content marketing, generating awareness and gaining much-needed conversations around the product, driven by internet users on influencer platforms like blogs. Blogging has become one of the powerful mediums of late and IndiPR.com thanks to its growing membership can offer exactly that.

One of the main issues that most marketers face when working with influencers is the cumbersome process associated with identifying and targeting each Influencer. Karthik DR, Co-founder & Business Head at IndiBlogger says, “The amount of time that people spend in trying to identify and contact influencers is huge. With IndiPR.com, you don’t have to worry about any of this as the system just needs your Press Release. The rest is history!”

In the future, IndiPR.com will carry more than just Press Releases. Influencers will be able to get creative assignments, get invitations to attend the trendiest launch events and be privy to the latest news on the planet before the world wakes up to it. It all sounds exciting, isn’t it?

Renie Ravin, the Founder, and CEO of IndiBlogger, says, “We believe that this system will help Influencers with fresh and new content on their site every day. In a way, you could be writing about the next Google without even realising its immense potential.”
